    Headset for a 2011 Salsa ala Carte

    Hi there. Been looking for a new frame for a few weeks now and have just purchased a brand new 2011 Sasla ala Carte 20" frame which will be arriving this week!

    Could someone kindly point me to the correct non-tapered headset for this frame? Am looking at going the Cane Creek 40 series route but not 100% sure which is the correct one and there is no specific info out there I am able to track down.

    Thanks very much for your help!

    Thanks for the link, however, the finder requires you to know both top and bottom internal head-tube diameters which I do not know as I do not yet have the frame.

    Having said that I have since recieved confirmation from Salsa that the correct one for the 2011 ala Carte is an EC34, 1 1/18th" external cup set.

    So am going for the Cane Creek Forty, hard to justify the 110 or the Chris King given that they are roughly 3 times the price.
